be a negotiating ploy by speaker boehner and the republicans to says look, we have been very reasonable, we put revenues on the table right from the start. if this falls apart it is all on the democrats. that is not a bad negotiating point. it is way too soon-to-be optimistic. ultimately they will avoid the cliff but we do not have good reason today to believe it will happen soon. >>trace: good to see you. chris anchors fox news sunday this week and will talk of the ongoing investigation into the attack in libya with vice chairman of the senate intelligence committee and chairman of the senate homeland committee joe lieberman and the future of the g.o.p. with louisiana governor jindal and wisconsin governor caught walker this weekend on "fox news sunday." now, one of the areas that super storm sandy devastated and police in new york say they are concerned that looting could become a big problem. rick got to fly with cops who are taking measure to keep folks from becoming victims for a second time. he joins us live with the details from queens. how big of a problem is this? rick: it could be wor
and the ongoing relationship with boehner and mcconnell because he's going to have to be a different kind of leader with them. he talked about it in the press conference a bit the other day. he needs to reach out to them the way he's reached out to people on staten island and dealt with the two governors, christie and cuomo, who are two pretty demanding guys as well. and based on their public and private comments have been very happy with the president's leadership and his government. >> i just wonder if it's fair to make a parallel when you look at the president's response to sandy which has had and continues to have just devastating effects on the economy for businesses and the reaction to the bp oil spill which seemed slow in coming because that was devastating as well to a different part of the country. >> he certainly was. he was very slow to respond to people in the gulf coast. >> in terms of appearances. >> i think things have changed, though, over the past couple years. and i suspect that, you know, even the president's closest allies will say that it was a very hard adjustment go
connell and john boehner's people sort of drawing their lines in the sand. that's not really happening even though that is sort of by far much sort of bigger story as far as what's going to happen in the country. as far as -- and priority list for both the white house and congress. >> do you think they also get that at the white house? that as long as -- as much as they may be getting hurt or not by the islamist people are talking about benghazi, it enables some room for the white house to get involved in the negotiations as well. >> it allows them to negotiate this without sort of a spotlight on fiscal cliff story which is -- you know, a story that has about six weeks left in it before some -- before taxes go up on everyone and significant spending cuts happen across the country. not just the military. >> you've been covering the hill for awhile in addition to the campaigns. do you get the sense that this will be the time when they say okay, they've reached some agreement on the tax out on the revenue side and republicans eat i
